The breakfast buffet was good, plenty of options. Especially nice was the omelet with shrimp. I've not had it before and found it to be delicious. Two complaints, first there was no butter for the toast, it ran out but was not refilled. Second is the pigeons, I understand that they're there since the restaurant has no windows, but when the table of a father and 2 young sons next to us left, the floor was covered in food and instead of sweeping it, the staff left it on the floor for the pigeons to eat.

Service staff was great, friendly, prompt. Food was expensive, but it wasn't the price that bothered us. $34 for a piece of salmon, but it came with no sides. Just the fish. And you pay another $10 to have it cooked unless you want to stand over a grill with people you don't know. Maybe that's the experience you want? My food was decent except for the charred Brussels sprouts. That was all I could taste for hours later. I feel a little sorry that the wait staff had to serve what we ate because it reflects on the restaurant and they served us well. Either way, I wouldn't recommend this place.

I'd recommend the Reef Bar and Market Grill for the location alone! Beautiful on the water's edge. Our food allergies we well taken care of by our server and the kitchen, a bonus. Two in our party grilled their steaks, and while it was tasty, the grill area was very hot and smoky so when we return we will have our steaks cooked in the kitchen.

It was our anniversary and we were treated like VIPs! The salad bar was fresh with plenty of choices. We were encouraged to take our time and enjoy. Our fillets were tender and delicious. Would recommend the butcher go “light” on the spice rub so as not to overpower the steak. The loaded baked potato was so large that we could have split one and been just fine. It was the perfect matchup for the steak. Service was amazing! We plan on recommending this restaurant to everyone!!!

Of all the Waikiki buffets this is by far the best value for your money !! The staff is exemplifies the “Aloha Spirit” . So what no crab legs , not a deal breaker !! Good variety of fresh fruits which other buffets lack . Omelette station & carving station were Pro’s . Most of all the Million dollar view.
I would definitely recommend this place for a family gathering.

The ocean view is great from the lanai (but only 2 tables there). Most of the entrees you cook yourself, which is not appealing to me. I'm not a good cook and I want to take a break from cooking when I eat out. They will cook your entree for you for an extra $10, but the process of arranging that was too complicated. There is a short menu of items the kitchen cooks, so I ordered the braised short ribs with mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts. The meal was amazingly flavorless. This place is just not worth the money or the effort.

Beautiful setting, food is good, however over priced especially for grilling your own meal. Would really like to see a salad bar only option which was offered when it was shorebird. Service was not the greatest, but server was friendly never the less. We enjoyed our meal and our visit to oahu is not complete without a stop here.

大人3名子供3名、6人で利用しました。時間より早めに行ったら、窓側の席に待ち時間なく座れ、眺めの良さに感激しました。お肉はリブアイ、サーロインを頼みました。自分で焼くので楽しめましたが、味はまあまあ。サラダバーはお得感があります。ハンバーガーは美味しかったてす。デザートは甘いし、大きくて、6人で3つが多いくらいでした。5時半くらいから、サンセットまでがおススメ、雰囲気を楽しむには最高の場所です。

お肉は自分で持って行き焼いてもらうスタイルで、スタッフの方もとてもフレンドリーだったので子ども達もとても楽しんでいました。

Had lunch here before and it was great! Dinner however was extremely overpriced for what it is. My ahi was not good (I didn’t even finish it) and the waiter was extremely polite but he never came back to our table really at all once our order was placed. I was going to order another drink but never got the chance. Many empty tables so I’m not sure what the deal was. Very disappointed.

Slow service on arrival, no hostess for a few minutes and patrons lined up. Slow waiter service after arrival at table. Had buffet which lacked replenishment of bacon and pineapple at times. Not what the Shorebird used to offer at much less cost, which also included and turkey and ham carving station. Great location by the beach but not what it used to be like in better times under the Shorebird name.

Went there for Valentines Day. My wife got shrimp kabobs and I got the Valentines Day $95 price fix dinner which was Champagne and chocolate strawberries, salad bar, 8 0z filllet and lobster tail and chocolate cake. All was mediocre. Salad bar is underwhelming with not much on it. All of the entree seemed to have no seasoning and were very bland. Didn't even gett melted butter for the lobster. The waitress told us to use the sauces at the end of the salad bar, but they couldn't make up for the unseasoned, bland food. The price fix menu included no sides with the main course either. The chocolate cakes was thin and flat and covered with some sort of strawberry compote. My wife wouldn't even eat it, but at least it was heart shaped.

Our waitress was very friendly, but they seemed understaffed. Dinner was incredibly slow and took over 2 hours. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us the hotel discount when we mentioned how bland the food was.

On the upside, there was an incredible ocean view. But overall it was disappointing.

料理はすごく美味しかったです!
ただサンセット直前に肉料理がきて、ここでは注文票をお肉のカウンターに持って行ってから、グリルで焼くんですが、サンセットいいところ見れないかと思うくらいギリギリまでかかってしまって…
言えば焼いて持ってきてくれるのかもしれないけど英語力ないのでそこまではできなかったです!
まぁ結局サンセット観れたんで最高だったんですけど。
直前の予約にも関わらず、すごくいい席に通してもらってすごく嬉しかったです。
とてもいい思い出になりました!
